Are you guys ready for an autumn invasion on my blog? I am and I’m so excited about today’s post! I really hope you guys like it and that it inspires you to celebrate a ton this fall! Last week I took a trip to Michael’s craft store to find some fall decorations that could (pumpkin) spice up my room. Lol, see what I did there? I’m so cheesy, I apologize. I didn’t realize they were having such great deals going on so I ended up getting a lot more than expected because everything was so cheap! So let’s just get right into it, I’m too excited too show you guys everything!
Bed Decor & Pillows
These gorgeous leaves were an item I went specifically to purchase from Michael’s. I really wanted decor that would have a very nature-esque vibe. They were exactly what I was imagining. I believe they were sold originally for $9 or $10 but they were having a discount so I bought them for $4. When I said Michael’s was having deal, I meant amazing deals on Halloween/fall decorations. They ended up working perfectly with the fairy lights I already had on my headboard (my headboard and bed is from Ikea, in case you were curious). I bought those lights at Target for $6. I seriously have been finding all the deals lately guys! I ended up loving the leaves and lights combination against my gray pillowcases and bedding. The pillowcases and the sheets have little white outlines of flowers, which go perfectly with the leaves. My sheets and bedding are also from Target. The pillow ended up being the most expensive item I purchased that day, also from Michael’s. The “hello fall” pillow was $14.99 and has a little pumpkin and leaves on the bottom left. It ties together my autumn aesthetic so well and I’m really happy with how my bed is looking for this season!
Michael’s was selling a ton of these little decorative signs when I was there. All in different sizes with different sayings. This one was my favorite with the brown vertical stripes and the little pumpkin that looks like it was hand painted. For some reason this just looks like it belongs in a kitchen, so that’s exactly where I hung it. It would also be adorable on a bedside table or a desk, but I like how it looks hung in my kitchen. The frame comes off the wall about an inch and a half, and I love that about it. It’s super unique and I love buying canvases that come off the wall like that as well. I believe this was on sale as well, so I purchased it for $4.49.
Dark Pumpkin Decor
At Michael’s they were offering so many of these little stacked pumpkins. I love how cute the little on on top is! I’m not sure I’ve mentioned this before on the blog but I absolutely love buying anything black, whether that’s clothing or decor! So these little pumpkins really spoke to me. I also really love how there’s a cut out in the back so you can put anything in it. I put some of my little fairy lights in the pumpkins so they glowed from the inside out. It was a nice little detail and really contrasted with the black. I might put a couple tea lights inside and see how that works. Candy would also be a great thing to put in here if you have friends over so they can steal a piece here and there. I’m almost positive this was $9.99, it could possibly by $8 (my receipt isn’t very clear which item is which, lol).
Continuing on with this dark pumpkin trend, I got a simple fake pumpkin. It’s nothing super special, but I thought it would look great somewhere in our living room or in my room. Michael’s had an assortment of different colors and sizes of fake pumpkins as well. There was this black color, orange, or a cream. So simple, yet so autumnal!
Skull Makeup Bowl
This is definitely one of my favorite things I purchased. It also came in a variety of colors including red and black. I loved the clear one simply because it matches my aesthetic and I like the simplicity of it. This could be used in so many different ways, for example holding fairy lights, candy or a candle but I love using it as a little makeup brush bowl. They fit perfectly inside and honestly I would use this year round. I’ve seen a lot of Halloween hauls on YouTube and this seems to be the item a lot of YouTubers are buying. And since it happened to be at Michael’s and was only $2.99 I thought I’d pick one up for myself!
Tea lights were a little something I thought would be very useful for the season. They are non-scented so I will purely use them for their light. Again, I love how easy and simple they are while still bringing that nice mood lighting into any room. I thought I’d try and use these inside some of the items I bought too, assuming they won’t melt them or set them on fire! Autumn is definitely the time I use the most candles, so I’m glad I got these. A fairly large set of them was only $2.99, so if you’ve been looking for tea lights, try out Michael’s!
Orange Halloween Lights
Last but not least, I picked up some run of the mill Christmas lights in orange. I thought this will be great specifically for our living room. Orange is the epitome of fall for me, it’s just about the only season I ever use it, lol. They just seemed super fun, although the strand is pretty short so I would recommend getting two if you’re trying to cover a large area in your home. These were also only a few dollars I believe. I can’t wait to hang them up and celebrate the season!
That’s about all I have for you guys for this post, I really hope you liked everything! I don’t think I’ve ever decorated this much for fall, but I really enjoyed shopping and sharing everything. I know this post sounded like an ad for Michael’s but I honestly just loved all the deals they had! Almost all of them were 50% or 60% off which is seriously so good, especially for a college student wanting to be festive! Let me know down below in the comments which item was your favorite or if you have any questions! Look forward to more autumn posts to come! Until next time! xx
